Today’s post comes from Quetico Superintendent Trevor Gibb.
Quetico Provincial Park is primarily known for its world class backcountry canoeing opportunities.
However, once the lakes freeze and snow blankets the forest, the park transforms into a wilderness winter wonderland.
The park’s Dawson Trail Campground is road accessible, and in the winter, it becomes the jumping off point for many of Quetico’s winter activities.
While a number of parks throughout the province offer winter activities, Quetico is lucky enough to have one of the longest seasons. In a typical year, there is snow cover from mid-November to early April. That’s almost six months to make the most of winter!
